If in the West Yellowstone area this restaurant and bar would be worth a visit. Not the cabins for lodging but the restaurant itself. Good food and really great atmosphere.

My wife said her steak was only about average but my trout was fantastic. But the best thing about this place is the look of the restaurant--it's really neat and hard to describe other than to say it had LOTS of stuffed animals about the place. Very friendly wait staff as well.

We had a very memorable dining experience for our last night in Yellowstone. Jamie, our waitress could not have been more personable and friendly. Food was top notch. 3 of us had the trout, which was excellent. The ribeye steak was also huge and tasty. The rest of our party had the beef stroganoff and the special which was shrimp... More

The restaurant is really unique and the food was very good but we had a strange experience. Staying in the lodge we had front desk call to assure they had room for us to eat at 8:30. When we arrived we were asked to sit at the bar until a table was ready as a reservation for 20+ people from... More

Do yourself a favor and eat here when you visit West! Ideal ambience, great food and unexpectedly fine service. Locally sourced steaks prepared by someone who does them justice! Playful delicious appetizers and drinks. Pleased to have Jamie wait in us twice now. Just wonderful.

Steaks were cooked to perfection, but unfortunately, that was it for any satisfaction. Service was terrible - made the mistake of asking for a window table so we were forgotten about. On a Saturday night? I had to get up and go find our server to ask for steak sauce and refills on drinks. Then, no baked potato offered? Really?... More
